Broward Supervisor Of Elections Headlined Partisan Discussion For Potential Candidates

By RedBroward, Special to EyesOnNews.com, June 18, 2015 – In another stunning example of partisan behavior, Broward Supervisor of Elections (SOE) Brenda Snipes headlined a Democrat panel for political candidates at a conference organized by her office’s attorney. Snipes was the part of the “Running for Office and Promoting Issue-Based Campaigns” session at the 2014 South Florida Women Of Color Empowerment Conference in Fort Lauderdale. As REDBROWARD reported last week, the group is the brainchild of Burnadette Norris Weeks, Snipes’ “right-hand” private contract […]

South Florida winning war against saltwater intrusion, but it’s not cheap

By Ann Henson Feltgen, FloridaBulldog.org, Special to EyesOnNews.com, June 18, 2015 – Saltwater intrusion leading to contaminated drinking water wells has long been feared in South Florida. But, billions spent on measures to protect our water supply — mostly paid for by utilities and their customers — have paid off so far. The invisible underground barrier separating salt and fresh water is holding saltwater back to the 1995 boundary or even farther east, scientists say. “This is a success,” said U.S. […]

Baseball’s Cardinals say committed to finding truth about data breach (Video)

By Steve Ginsburg in Washington (Reuters), June 17,2015 –  ­ The owner of the St. Louis Cardinals said on Wednesday he was committed to finding out if anyone in his organization hacked into the Houston Astros’ computers to steal team secrets and that any offenders “will be held accountable.” Federal authorities are investigating the Cardinals to determine who, if anyone connected with the baseball team, was involved in the data breach concerning Astros’ trades, proprietary statistics and scouting reports. “These are serious allegations that don’t reflect who […]

Cheating ingrained in baseball long before alleged Cardinals hack

By Steve Ginsburg, WASHINGTON (Reuters) ­June 17, 2015 –  Cheating in baseball has been a tradition since the days of Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth ­ generations before Major League Baseball confirmed that the St. Louis Cardinals are being investigated for possibly hacking in to the computers of the Houston Astros. The practice has been romanticized because of the many uncomplicated ­ and often hilarious ­ ways to beat the system, whether by using a telescope from the center field stands to steal a catcher’s signs […]

Mayo Expert Says New Cholesterol Drugs are Very Effective

By Dennis Douda, Mayo Clinic.org, – June 17, 2015 – The FDA may approve the new medications for use later this year.

Nabil El Sanadi – Broward Health’s Million Dollar CEO!

By Dan Lewis of BrwdHealth For EyesOnNews.com, June 15, 2015 – Dr. Nabil El Sanadi, crying poverty, is Broward Health’s highest paid CEO in history with over one million dollars in “active” compensation by including his “part-time” work and his full-time position as CEO.  This for a person who has never managed a hospital let alone one of the largest public hospital systems in the nation. Last April 2015, I wrote two posts about Dr. El Sanadi’s appointment and contract as Broward […]

Candidate Cancels Fundraiser At “Breastaurant”

By Buddy Nevins, BrowardBeat.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, June 15, 2015 – This can be chalked up to the “What Was She Thinking” category. Judicial candidate Lea Krauss has cancelled plans to hold her campaign kickoff at a Fort Lauderdale “breastaurant” that features scantly clad, flirty waitresses. The invitation for the kickoff disappeared from Krauss’ Facebook page shortly after Browardbeat.com e-mailed her with a question about the fundraiser. The event at the Tilted Kilt was replaced with one at a Fort Lauderdale […]

NASA finds glass on Mars, which could help the hunt for alien life

By Miriam Kramer, Mashable, June 15, 2015 – For the first time, a spacecraft orbiting Mars has detected glass deposits inside craters on the red planet — a possible boon in the hunt for signs of past Martian life. Researchers think that the glass was created when impactors (meteoroids, asteroids or comets) slammed into Mars, superheating the Martian dirt and turning parts of the surface into glass. Scientists using NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) were able to see glass on […]

On Eve of Presidential Race Announcement Bush releases new logo and video

By Phil Ammann & Mitch Perry, SaintPetersBlog, June 14, 2015 – With only hours until announcing his long-awaited 2016 presidential campaign, Jeb Bush looks to the future — with a nod to his past. On Sunday, Bush’s campaign tweeted out a new logo — “Jeb! 2016″ — without the famous family name “Bush.” For those who remember, Bush’s new campaign symbol was a clear callback to his previous runs for Florida governor in the 1990s. Others compared the logo — a first […]
